ALKONOST

The sweetly tweeting Bird of Death

She's a Russian version of a Harpy: half-bird, half-woman. As the cynical among you might expect, the human bits include shapely naked lady breasts.

Like the Greek SIRENS, the ALKONOSTs are notorious for their hideously beautiful voices. They torment the damned with haunting terrible songs so they never get any peace. We have a feeling they practice a lot on the living. Just think Russia Mythology's Got Talent.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Alkonost graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Alkonost movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Alkonost statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Alkonost. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
